UKIP MEP Gerard Batten warns that tomorrow the Cameron government will oversee the silent surrender of another 44 UK powers to Brussels' control
• The European Union is very much in the news lately. The big issues are of course continued out-of-control immigration, and the EU’s demands for another £1.7 billion.
David Cameron is in panic mode as he promises of ‘curbs on migration’ and the ‘renegotiation of our relationship with the EU’ and a ‘return of powers’. All of this is complete pie-in-the-sky, which he cannot deliver, and about which he is not sincere in any case.
What is going unnoticed meanshile is that on 1st Novermber 2014 there will be another masssive transfer of powers to the European Union. Under the Lisbon Treaty it was agreed that numerous areas of policy will now be decided by a system of Qualified Majority Voting and Britain will lose its power to stop new laws in the European Council (Heads of Government).
The British peoiple were denied a referendum on Lisbon, despite promises by Labour, and a “cast iron guarantee” by the Conservatives. So Mr Cameron, who sits on the European Council, willingly given up control of a range of policy areas that include Border Controls, Criminal Law, Immigration, Police Co-operation, Space Sport, and our abilty to withdraw from the European Union, to name just a few out of 44.
